The objective of production chemistry is to support and enhance oil and gas production. However it is well known that the impact of chemicals on the production and treatment process can be very complex.

This course provides an introductory overview of chemical aspects for the daily production process. It deals with the basics of oil and gas production including organic and inorganic chemistry and the impact of surface tension and salinity on production aspects. Special emphasis is placed on compatibility of production chemicals, troubleshooting, interpretation of gas, oil and water analysis and product application / dosage under daily operational aspects.

Participants will work on practical problems to ensure a better awareness of production chemistry-related issues like interpretation of water / gas / oil composition supported by video clips. They will elucidate the production history based on field examples and on practical experience.

Suitability - Who should attend?

This training course in Production Chemistry is especially suitable for engineers and operational technicians with little or no chemical background.
